4 Turntables & A Microphone

My friends always used to make fun of me when I mixed out cuz I always looked so pissed while in the mix.  I’ve definitely gotten better about the scowling.  Now since I don’t mix out that much, I savour the few times that I do and it’s straight up party time cuz I’m happy to see all my friends out.

I think when I used to mix out regularly I just got really involved in what I was doing so I didn’t really find it necessary to get involved with what the crowd was doing… Obviously, not the best tactic if you’re supposed to be playing for others so I guess that’s why I kinda stopped doing it on the regular.

I’m really not into people paying attention to me so I guess that’s why djing out wasn’t my most favourite thing back then, but I liked hearing my records on a loud sound system so I tolerated it.

This weekend I mixed a house set with Caleb and I had so much fun. We got some serious 4 turntable action going and I was super into it. Just 2 hours of old house music classics. It’s so engaging and you have to be constantly on the ball. I think if I had some kinda tagteam partner like that back in the day I would probably have been way more into mixing out.

I also made an old skool dnb mix and an old skool 2step/garage mix. My saturday consisted of about 6 hours of mixing which is seriously entertaining once you get into that zone. We’ll see if I actually let anyone listen to those mixes. I’m notorious for making mixes and then playing them for an audience of one… me. LOL.

I also recorded some soundbytes for Caleb’s mixtape. Boo. I really hate doing that shit. To make matters worse he cut my voice with my most hated vocal of that stupid girl saying something about being absolutely on whoever’s jock or whatever. I know you know it. Anyways, why anyone would want to hear my annoying voice is beyond me but I figured since I monopolized his studio for 6 hours it’s the least I can do and the mixtape is a hip hop one so I’m pretty sure I’ll never hear it and so I’m content to pretend that it never happened. LOL.

Enough about me.

Loved this EP. Classic.

I’ve been coveting another RM track for a while now. I had been hearing it often but didn’t know the name. Fortunately it’s the first track on this mix. Waterlogged. Woot. I’m pretty sure that my obsession with RM will have to stop eventually, but for now enjoy this mix.
